    I stole this from another thread as it’s the exact same issue:

    I have a problem with getting the registration page to work – the registration page itself is displayed properly, however when I try to submit the registration form (“Complete Sign Up”), all it does is reload the page with fields already filled in (only password fields are blank) and nothing more happens.

    WordPress Registration works just fine when BuddyPress is disabled using the Bridge theme. Registration also works when BuddyPress is enabled and I switch to the 2014 theme. Even with all the plugins installed. Perhaps some script conflict within the main theme files?

    Here’s a link to the registration page:

    You mentioned you’re using a customised theme. Can you check if you still see the problem when using Twenty Fifteen?



    I was able to get the registration to work with BuddyPress on Twenty Fourteen. Is there much of a difference between Twenty Fourteen and Twenty Fifteen?



    Thank you



    I found the issue. Flipping to view in twenty fourteen revealed a duplicate registration (name) field that was being hidden (and was required). So, thus, registration could never submit if it was never populated.
